The gyroscopic effect has practically nothing to do with riding a bike.
If someone is claiming that he is flat our wrong.
Yep as I said "Scientists have been puzzling over what makes bicycles balance since they were invented, back in the 19th century. In 2007, a group of engineers and mathematicians led by Nottingham University's J.P. Meijaard announced they'd finally cracked the mystery with a set of incredibly complex mathematical equations that explain how a bicycle behaves—and it turns out that gyroscopes are only part of the story"

The gyroscope effect is a very small part. In fact one group developed bicycle with a counter-rotating wheel to take out the gyroscopic effect and the bicycle was still balanced in almost the same way.

Not quite the article I was looking for, but with this bike the gyroscopic effect can be almost eliminated:

Counter steering is what keeps a bicycle upright. And it also means that when you want to go left on a bicycle you first have to steer left.

Jupiter's a gas planet. It would burn up before it hit the corona of the sun more than likely. In theory I was speaking of an metor (more than an asteroid which is ice and would melt) of a substantially large size that would penetrate to the interior of the sun. But as I stated it was a hypothetical theory not to be taken literal. I was making a hypothetical point of the earth.
No, you suggesting a bb is going to move a monster truck wheel.

Come on geography boy, tell us where were is. Spell check doesn't correct real words religitard. Would you like to try again? Still don't believe in evolution, how about I drop a fossil on your foot? If you weren't hom skooled you wouldn't need to be spell checked.

For ages, scientists assumed that the gyroscopic effect (the force that keeps a spinning top from falling over) was the key for a bike's balance. In the '70s, science disproved that theory.

Really? I don't know of any scientists that made that assumption. Do you have any evidence that supports that claim?

Another semi-coherent response. Come on, if you can't write a coherent sentence at least amuse us with your take on the science of the talking snake. What are you trying to say, I read your posts and I become more and more perplexed. You really seem to love simplistic acronyms. They are comfort food for tiny minds.

Let me tell you something Dan. I give what I get. Most times but not all of my post show that. There are time I get fed up and spout off just as most everyone does. But I usually don't become an pain in the @ss to anyone that does not ask for it. Now you can go on about why I came here and/or the socks I once had but the facts will still show I am most usually civil until I am treated un-civil then as far as I see there are no rules to follow.

My bad Davy. I must have posted this on the wrong thread so I will post it again:

Just because I am fed up with grey box tards I am going to be an @ssss. You say you asked your wife to get naked but she didn't believe your snake could really talk and she wouldn't give your snake a kiss no matter how many times you asked. Maybe she is tired of your limp little worm. Maybe some one else's snake is taking to her and getting her kisses. Just a thought.

You say I have been your spell checker and thus have done it to me. That is a lie. I have never mentioned your spelling ever. You don't give what you get. You followed me around Topix. I did not follow you. So please spare me your self-righteousness. It is unwarranted.

Here you go again on a pitty trip. yes you have knocked my spelling and yes you have followed me to threads. Springfield thread, Houston thread, Licking thread, If I remember correct you even commented on Houston and Licking about how you had been down in those areas hunting before. Also the thread what song are you listening to,,,, this stupid childish crap gets old. Why do you keep it alive and going. Are you looking for pity? Are you looking for self-reasoning? Are you looking for self-satisfaction? Drop it or speak up. As I said it gets old addressing this crap at least once a week. I am tired f it and I am sure most people here are tired of it as well but you always keep it alive and going.

Sorry religitard, my wife is very happy with my snake and you are still barely coherent. I don't doubt that you have no clue where (were) you are posting, religion kills brains dead.

If your wife was happy with your snake you would not be on here talking about how she doesn't have much to do with your snake, just saying. LMAO

Matter of fact you better go back to her room and make sure she is not having phone sex with Bubba while you set here and tell us how she won't have anything to do with your little worm. LOL
